Email campaign against Croatian football homophobia

On Monday, 8 November, Vlatko Markovic, president of the Croatian Football Federation stated that: “[w]hile I’m a president of the Croatian Football Federation, there will be no homosexuals playing in the national team…. Luckily, only normal people play football.” Croatian gay and lesbian organizations have already condemned Markovic for these appalling statements, and at Red Card Homophobia we would like to support them by launching an e-mail campaign to the CFF and UEFA (Union of European Football Associations). We have drafted e-mails in both Croatian and English that you can copy and paste and send to both organizations. Don’t forget to add your name as a signature. It only takes two seconds, so we urge you to take the time to help give homophobia the red card.

Poštovani predsjedniče Marković,

Homofobija je u svakom pogledu uvredljiva i u direktnoj je suprotnosti s geslom o POŠTOVANJU i nastojanjima UEFA-e da se to poštovanje održi. Vaše izjave i zabrane na temelju diskriminacije pojedinaca neprihvatljive su, i kao član organizacije CRVENI KARTON ZA HOMOFOBIJU, potičem Vas da osigurate da svaki kvalificirani igrač može igrati za reprezentaciju Hrvatske.

Dear President Michel Platini

I am writing to you to express concern about the recent comments made by Vlatko Markovic, President of the Croatia Football Federation against homosexuals. Homophobia in any form is objectionable and directly opposes the RESPECT campaign fostered by UEFA. His statements and discriminatory bans are unacceptable and as a member of Red Card Homophobia, I urge you to ensure all high-quality players can play for Croatia.

Monsieur le Président,

J'ai le regret de vous écrire au sujet des récentes remarques à l'encontre de joueurs homosexuels de la part de M. Vlatko Markovic, président de la fédération croate de football. L'homophobie est inacceptable et est en contradiction directe avec la campagne RESPECT de l'UEFA. Les déclarations et les interdictions discriminatoires ainsi annoncées sont intolérables, et en tant que membre de la campagne Carton rouge à l'homophobie, je vous encourage à assurer que tout joueur qualifié pourra jouer pour la Croatie.
